From the Prayers of St Bridget honouring the Precious Blood of Jesus spilled for our salvation, as revealed to her by Our Lady: "Eternal Father, accept as worthy, for the needs of the Holy Church and as atonement for the sins of all Mankind, the Precious Blood and Water which poured forth from the Wound of Jesus' Divine Heart. Be gracious and merciful toward us. Blood of Christ, the last precious content of His Holy Heart, wash me of all my and others' guilt of sin! Water from the Side of Christ, wash me clean of all punishments for sin and extinguish the flames of Purgatory for me and for all the Poor Souls. Amen" This fresco is in the former Dominican convent of San Marco in Florence, executed by the school of Fra Angelico.
